Olympia Snowe: The Cancer of the GOP
The Associated Press decided today that Olympia Snowe gets the honor of wearing their esteemed "maverick" crown. Since she sided with the democrats, Snowe made a name for herself with the liberal media. Conservatives were rightly angry with the vote but not surprised. After all, Olympia Snowe is no conservative and seems to like being courted by both sides of the aisle. Who cares what a spineless prostitute you appear to be... At what other time does a gal like Olympia get this much attention? Do you sense my lack of respect for the senator yet? Good.
Others have pointed out the obvious. That her Senate seat is safe and being in her position will ensure her more power in the process. Not a very “mavericky” thing to do by any stretch of the imagination. From my perch here on the great left coast, it appears as though the democrats simply bought a better lobster dinner.
Her entire excuse for the vote rests on this theory, "When history calls, history calls." FANTASTIC! That my friends is a classic example of the pure, rank narcissism seeping from our beloved capitol. I could go into the so called "historical" value of her vote but I won't waste my time. In fact, I don't really think there is any historical value minus the historical failure of elected officials to listen to their constituents. If the bill actually passes, that will be the historical travesty of the death of liberty in this nation. Rights and freedom of choice will only slip away piece by piece after that. It's bad enough as it is now but when you give the government that much control, it's over.
The liberal AP were so excited over their health care victory, they just had to get a twofer for the day. Why not use the opportunity to smack Sarah Palin in the back of the head? Hey, why not? Olympia is a female so that makes sense, right? Their headline: "The real female maverick in GOP: Olympia Snowe."
Why do I feel as though I am dealing with a pack of jealous high school girls when I read anything the MSM writes about Sarah Palin? "The real female maverick in GOP" PATHETIC.
Since the leftist media likes to apply the word "maverick" to unprincipled republicans, I say they can have it. Time Magazine referred to Governor Palin as a "renegade" and she'll tell you she can go "rogue." She went against her own party but never against her own principles. The Alaska GOP was corrupt and in bed with certain members of the oil industry. She knew it and knew it was hurting the people of Alaska so she stopped it. She didn't care if her party hated her and she most certainly wasn't wooed with fancy gifts. She took a stand for the people of her state. She also took a stand for her principles and never acted in a way that might fundamentally change Alaska for the worse.
"Legislators need only defend the public's interest and they'll inherently do what's right."-Sarah Palin (Renegade)
Olympia Snowe is no maverick, no renegade, and she certainly didn't go rogue. She went with the pack. She went with the White House and the democrat run House and Senate. She went with the biggest pack of them all, BIG government and had her butt kissed the entire time.
This club mentality, the inability to hear us, the citizens of this nation. The elite DC brat squad that spends and prints money with the same respect they take a constituents phone call. They are not mavericks, they are the cancer in the body politic polluting the most (or at least it was) powerful nation on earth.
